Can you give me some feedback on this game?

I recently saw a game/task that requires students to put certain words into groups. The names of the groups were not given, so students had to decide themselves which words would go together well. The aim of the task was to get them to recall the meaning of the words and think about how they were all connected. The topic was technology and the words I chose were either related to advanced technology, appliances or the effect on people's lives. Some students told me today they didn't think it was a useful activity, mainly because I didn't validate every single answer due to time constraints as I had quite a few groups doing the task (didn't want other students to get bored) but also that they didn't learn anything. I've attached a copy of the PPT slide I displayed during this activity - please let me know your honest thoughts.

The activity looks good to me. It might be good to give or check answers.
